Dallas PPA Education
Dallas PPA strives to bring the best education to our members every year. The Director of Education and the Board work hard to confirm the following year’s speakers well in advance to bring in the best people. The Board also conducts a survey of the members periodically to assess the topics that are most important to the membership and act as a guide toward what kinds of speakers to consider. We have a speaker at every monthly meeting, and we also host a multi-day annual seminar known as Little Red Schoolhouse that provides in-depth information on the topic chosen that year.
DPPA monthly meeting speakers include: Ella Carlson, Tim Walden, Melanie Anderson, Gary Hughes, Kimberly Smith, Megan DiPiero, Richard Sturdevant, Cris and Deanna Duncan, Gail Nogle, Barbara Breitsameter, Elizabeth Homan, Russ Harrington, Sandra Pearce, Chris Knight, Ryan Schembri, Rocco Ancora, Alicia Adamopoulos, Dan Frievalt, Mark Bryant, Michelle Parsley, and more.
DPPA Little Red Schoolhouse speakers include: Luke and David Edmonson, Jerry Ghionis, Lindsay Adler, and Roberto Valenzuela.
We offer Member 2 Member classes as well, where our members volunteer to teach a topic on which they have extensive knowledge to other members who want to learn. We have offered topics including various aspects of Print Competition, social media, time lapse photography, post-production, and off-camera flash.
See the Events page for the current list of speakers and classes offered.
We also promote the TPPA, PPA, and ASP degrees and support our members as they work toward achieving them. We have more than 30 Master Photographers, more than 20 Photographic Craftsmen, several Master Artists, and more than 50 CPPs. Many of our members have received TPPA Fellowships, and we have one ASP Fellow.
